www.erlang.com is a telecommunication site with a difference. Are you a telecom engineer looking for solution for odd issues on field? Then this possibly is the only place where you could get immediate advice on anything that relates to telecom. The forum is the major attraction of the site and has a search functionality to zero in on your requirement. Thought it seems necessary to add the point that search function looks for exact match and multiple keyword search does not seem to work .The reason why this site is a good find is that there are few experts who frequently advice, on the board ,the less endowed ones on their unresolved queries. Be it hardware or a software issue, you are sure to find like minded individuals who have the same concern. The site does not have cool graphics to boast, which is evident since it is not one which is viewed by the general public and caters to a just a minority section of the society
However the site needs to be marketed better still to have a larger participation. The forum should introduce attachment sharing so that large log files or snapshots could be shared among the members .The membership is free which is appreciable. Technical sites usually does not encourage free membership and all that an outsider gets to view is a small abstract/citation of technical literature which seldom helps .In that way Erlang.com is one of the only specialized technical websites where more people could gain from.
